Hey guys,

I'm in the process of installing rear camber arms and toe arms on my svt.
I got one side completely done, but I had a seized bolt on the other side
where to toe arms goes. I cut the bolt and now I have a part of the bolt
stuck in the nut, and I can't get it out with any sort of pliers.

I think my two options are to weld the head onto the bolt and that
should allow me to turn the bolt right out.

Or maybe a bolt extraction kit.

I don't have a welder, or a bolt extraction kit, or a drill for the kit.

Any of you guys have a welder and can bring it to my house,
or if you think a bolt extraction kit would work and you have
one that I could borrow, I'd be greatly appreciative.

Here are a few pics of what I'm dealing with:







I appreciate any help or tips you guys can give me.[thumb]

Do you have a torch? You can get some big vice grips and super heat the remaining portion of the bolt to a nice red, start twisting the bolt. Should be easy. I can't come down to help though, I'm in Nebraska till Sunday, sad.

when I was trying to do the toe arms I had issues with that same bolt...so I sold the toe arms. you should be able to finish cutting it off then just use a locking nut, or probably even a standard nut. I don't think it would go anywhere.

when i installed my air ride kit i had the same exact bolt break off on my car. i ended up getting the cut off wheel and cutting off as much as i could and then hammering through the rest with a center punch.

Got the nut cut off, now i need to drill through the remaining part of the bolt, and then
take my grinding wheel and flatten the side where the nut was a bit, then I'll be
good to install and finally be finished with this project. Thanks for the help guys!
